Food & Eating Consequences of Time-Use Decisions

Food and Eating Consequences of Time-Use Decisions was a July 2004 workshop sponsored by Farm Foundation and USDA's Economic Research Service.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' American Time Use Survey had important new data allowing researchers to analyze the choices people make in how they spend their time, the time and income constraints they face, and the consequences of their decisions.

Workshop participants examined how adding a proposed food and eating module to the study could provide data on the relationship between time use, eating patterns and food assistance participation. Program papers are available. Here is the conference agenda.
